American Idol
January 13th, 2009 by Mike

The new season of American Idol begins tonight with four hours of programming over the next two nights. Mrs. Major and Son Major enjoy this show. I use the show as an opportunity to read or fool around on the computer.

Kevin McDonough, in his column “Tune In Tonight,” sums the program up very well:

With its endless hours of idle chatter and forgettable patter, “Idol” was made for the fast-forward button. I tend to speed over the obviously horrible performances, the banal travelogue and practically every segment featuring Ryan Seacrest. Technology can be a wonderful thing.

I say, “Just saying, ‘no,’ can be a wonderful thing.”

    Never watched it, though I love Dancing with the Stars. πŸ™‚ Guess I’ll either read or watch Food Network or Discovery. Probably will do the same Thur for the Pres. farewell speech.

    I have to admit I watch it during the very early auditions. It’s like watching sychronized train wrecks. What can I say? It’s a weakness. 😈 Once the show gets past the first round, I lose interest because I can’t stand pop music. It’s predictable, overwrought, screeching, and, the worst offense of all, boring.

    I would have to agree with you on this one! I can always find better things to do when this is on TV – it’s pure torture!
